And the Winner is....

Woo-hoo! We have not just one winner, but TWO!!
Very pleased, this weekend I lost a follower, which brought me to 12, interesting play on getting me off the dreaded 13, not one I was expecting mind you. But we then gained two new followers. Yippeeee!!!! Ed & Jeanette, I can drop them up to the next market if you like, or just come in for a cup of tea sometime, and Melissa, please come in when you're ready. We're open Thursday to Sunday.

By the way, last Saturday we had the best Salamanca market since Easter. Coincidence? I think not!!! A warning for both of you, I'm not a regular writer, although I am improving and I would think the person who dropped me probably thought the blog was just downright boring.......

Very superstitious

Those of you who know me well enough, know that I'm very superstitious. I currently have 13 registered followers on this blog, can someone get me off it pleeeeasssee???? First up gets a Cygneture origin bar. Pick-up only, so Kitty Lynch, Carmel Burke, Edward Ward, Danielle Klinge and all your foreign friends & associates and all of my foreign  my friends and associates, you are exempt unless you turn up on my door. Please take this as a loving invitation to turn up on my door any time you like.

Also, Edward, you have a significant package developing in your lovely wife, so a significant package is developing over here to celebrate too, with musical notes and pink booties for girls & little sailing ships for boys (actually, either way the bub will gets both just to ensure non-gender-snootiness)
Ms. Lynch, you'll get what's coming to you, when I get my act together. It's the perfect time for posting to Europe, north of France at least. It's cold & wintry here and summer over there. As I said, perfect for posting...

Speaking of winter's chilly fingers reaching out for us, we had the Lantern Parade here to celebrate the pagan side of Cygnet

Snowman (obviously)

 Crowds gather
